I'm so sorry I haven't posted for a long time. I guess I've been really, really struggling directly with digital scrapbooking this summer.
1) First, my hard drive crashed, as I mentioned in a previous post. I lost all my family pictures. I had my digi supplies backed up at work, and luckily had uploaded most of my digital scrapbook pages to Cherishbound, so although I can't edit them, at least they are there. This is especially good in the case of my twins books, because I lost every picture from 2011 back. So I can't re-create anything pre-January because those pictures are gone. My heart aches to think about it. We took the hard drive in to get the data retreived, but they quoted us a price of $1900 to fix it. Might as well be a million. They are as good as gone--I'll never get the money for that. At least, not for a few more years at least.
2) My COMPUTER crashed. Yup. About three weeks later. Motherboard and power supply just up and died. Didn't lose anything, but I got a new computer I could NOT afford but had to have. I'm still struggling to get it working right.
3) After about a month and a half of avoiding it, I finally tried to finish off my twins books. I only had to do their last month. It was heartbreaking, as I realized anew just how much I've lost. I didn't even have a baby picture of them to put on the cover. Thank goodness my sister had one.
4) And now, PS4 is NOT working on my new computer. It crashes anywhere from 1 minute to 5 minutes after I load it. I don't know why, though I think it's a problem with my new computer, not the program itself, which worked fine on my old machine. I don't know how to fix it. I had the twins' books done, but then realized I had a GLARING error on one page that I have to redo. But I can't because Photoshop keeps crashing. Anyway, I'm very frustrated.
So I'm sorry if I haven't posted. I'm so lost and sick at heart and keeping up with this blog is becoming impossible. I am not closing it--not yet--but I am so discouraged from this craft right now that I can barely even try anymore. Thank you for listening.
